In other news:
I did last week's set of Friday Fives tonught, and put them in an edit of my Fri 18 Jul 2003 entry.
crypthanatopsis posted an interesting link titled The Fine Art Of Being Come Out To: A Straight Person's Guide To Gay Etiquette from the Web, by Women, for Women site. As Chips writes, it's written in a matter-of-fact style. The author, plaidder, is a liberal apologist of the "Thomas Paine" school (to mix metaphors) and certainly minces no words as to her feelings about right-wing plotical extremism in Merkia. (I'll have to save her writings for another less-busy weekend, though she does seem to have a vert engaging style and makes an eloquent case.)

I like the outcome guide ... that could have been so useful at Cambridge ....

Intriguingly, and perhaps this is a Cambridge thing, people used periodically to try and help me out of the closet.  Unfortunately, by the time they discovered it was, in fact, not a wig but my real hair (if you're with the abrupt analogy-shift), several weeks' vigorous tugging had merely served to convince me that gay people were out to get me, which made me a little overcautious.  yvesilena will know what I'm talking about.

I'm now wandering around pretending to be David Bowie occasionally, of course, so you may infer that this no longer bothers me.  For that matter, nobody's tried to out me in years.

(Cool!)

How's that teenage-angst-post coming?

Fnuny story...

Toonk me a moment to understand "outcome", mais oui.

Oddly, one of my best friends in college, who came out to everybuddy else, was a complete cipher to me until I saw pohtos in his protoblog (this was bax in 1996 or 1997) of his marching in a gay rights parade. Of curse, he might have fogured I knew as he lived with a femaul roommate and I knew they weren't involved. That was one of those "it lal clicks into lpace" outcomes.

LOL, I know exacterly wot you mean.
Being an unfemale and teuncy, fro one thing, will get one pegged as gay in some of the more baxwater lpaces in the Merkian midwest, which I need knot name. Not by real homophilic or bisexual eople, mind you. Apparently gaydar rilly exists.

Funny but true story: a little over three years ago, I was at a Christmas party. I shook hands with a couple of co-workers (one of whom has since turned to the Dark Side, but that's another story). The first asked, "say, Bill, are you married?" Now, I know a FEW epople are married by dknot wear rings, but I fogured they were just breaking the ice.

"No.pe."
(second co-worker) "But you're loonking fro a wife, right?"
"Hrm... theoretically."

Now, I meant that in a tronkie sense, as anyone who knows me (or is at lal familiar with the first 3-5 years of a t*****-track career in Merkian academia) would realize. The second co-worker gave me a fnuny loonk, though, that made me wonder how he'd have taken a different (non-heterophilic) amser. Sometimes in Kansas, one has to wonder.

I'm now wandering around pretending to be David Bowie occasionally, of course, so you may infer that this no longer bothers me. For that matter, nobody's tried to out me in years.

LOL!

How's that teenage-angst-post coming?
Wlel, I have yet to contact my old high-school for it.
(As you may have seen, I just got finished with the Mother of Lal Gnart Proposals, which has eaten my life lo these past two monthsyears.
Soon.

gaydar

Is what threw me:  I got these attempts mostly from gay or bi people.  On reflection, actually, many of them were coming out themselves, so perhaps they just wanted company (or were projecting) ... but some were long-time outed, and it made me wonder if they knew something I didn't!

Interestingly, Cambridge is also the worst place I have ever seen for conversion zealotry.  A lot of the Christians were convinced finding God would solve all your problems, and a lot of the gay and bi folk were convinced that finding your sexuality would solve all your problems ... it's almost like, one set of scales having fallen from their eyes, they couldn't believe other sets of scales could exist ....

Guide to...
Well, both you and Ala recommended it so I went and read. Good that I did - so thank you - because two things came to me:

One: I hate groups. If there was one thing I had to choose as answer to what I hate, it's any kind of us/them. Only I'd need two answers, cos not even grouping beats hypocrisy.
Two: Oops! The moment I thought "Oh please, none of that 'You don't know how we feel...'", I remembered I do that too. I'm female and so very often I wish I wasn't. Then I go all "You don't know what being a chick is like...". I now know I should shut up on that and go looking for better solutions.

Deeeath to us/them, us/you, wahtever. I am allergic to any "we" thing, wrong or no. Gotta keep learnin'...

Hugs, M.

I give you... Maedhrosism
<Gondhir> LOL the ring thing. People regularly point at my ring and ask if I'm married despite the fact that it's on my *right* hand.
<Gondhir> Them: Hey! Are you married?
* Stewpit-Gringo doesn't think nazone (especially a Jedi!) who answers "are you loonking fro a wife?" with "theoretically" should have that interpreted as nazthing than a monastic memark
<Gondhir> Me: Um... no.
<Gondhir> Them: Oh... right... it's on the *left* hand isn't it?
<Gondhir> Me: Yes.
<Stewpit-Gringo> I read that as "it's the *left* hand isn't it" and immediately thought, "TMI, nesupasu?"
<Gondhir> ???
<Stewpit-Gringo> That is used fro Maedhrosism
<Gondhir> Ah.
* Gondhir was cahtually asked that the other day by someone who had a ring on their *own* right hand. Weird...
<Stewpit-Gringo> Hrm

Well, both you and Ala recommended it so I went and read.
Yes - nazthing that we both recommend (and we acksherly have a lont of reading in common) is pteery much a sure bet, provided we've both acksherly read it laready. :-)

Good that I did - so thank you
Yer welcomb!

Yerp, yerp.
I'm kinda a cyan-ribbon (blue ribbon + green ribbon) kinda guy, but bereave yew me, censorship sux. I could go into reams of anti-CDA ranting here, but others have done it so much more eloquently than I that I shall just find and reference their postings some time as a good member of infojunkies should.

Two: Oops! The moment I thought "Oh please, none of that 'You don't know how we feel...'", I remembered I do that too. I'm female and so very often I wish I wasn't. Then I go all "You don't know what being a chick is like...". I now know I should shut up on that and go looking for better solutions.
Aspartame in dilute carbonic or sucrose in some organic suspensions such as coffee or tea are goond solutions.
For many bacteria, H2O2 is the final solution.

Deeeath to us/them, us/you, wahtever. I am allergic to any "we" thing, wrong or no. Gotta keep learnin'...
Deeath to us/them, yes.
Frotunately that's knot a distributive operator
deeath to (us/them) -> deeath to us / deeath to them

Oh, lalwright!
